Removing Buffalo TurboPC EX Series

Split from this thread.

This does not help for Windows 7. Already step 2, i.e. entering 'troubleshooting' does not find the location.

The above procedure does NOT work for Windows 10 Pro - seems I am 'stuck' because of (an earlier install on earlier O/S, this program operates regardless of Registry clearouts, EVEN when the program I DID uninstall 'Turbo PC EX' properly earlier : it remains listed in 'Device Manager', and NOW, impedes the correct operation of my (2Tb) BUFFALO external Hard drive.

I expect I shall have to follow the next stated steps, however - 'who knows' if that will work.

P.S. A re-install and then re-removal of 'Turbo PC EX' does NOT work, for me.

This does no work for me. Maybe I do not know how to start execution of the proposed program (lines).
Result will be that I choose to keep my Win 7 pro and abort my try to Win 10 upgrade for years to come.

Cheers.

On My computer I found that the Buffalo TurboPC  had been installed in the Root directory ( C:\ ) and NOT in the Program File Directory.  I just manually deleted these files since it was not showing in the add/remove  list.

It is worth trying but it did not solve my problem.

"Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709" failed repeatedly for months.
